Pope Paul VI

Pope Francis will officially declare Pope Paul VI Blessed on Sunday 19 October during the closing ‎Mass of the 3rd Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the family.

Pope Paul VI was cleared for ‎beatification on 9 May when Pope Francis recognised a miracle attributed to the intercession of his ‎predecessor, who headed the worldwide Catholic Church from 1963 to 1978.
